Mutin Tops Arc Sale At €700,000
One of the wildcard entries for this year's Arc Sale at Arqana (held on Saturday prior to Lonchamp's Arc meeting) has topped the session when selling for €700,000 to the bid of agent Hubie De Burgh. Undefeated 2YO colt Mutin (Kentucky Dynamite-Mytographie, by Anabaa) was purchased for an unnamed client, with De Burgh saying that it was for an established owner. Also active at the top end was Asian Bloodstock who paid €380,000 for Avantage & €320,000 for Cay Verde, both purchased on behalf of Hong Kong owner Howard Liang. Overall, including private sales, the sale's aggregate was €4,435,500 at an average of €150,808.
